Come on Cooler Weather!!!

 I'm wishing for fall!  I'm demanding the weather cool off and all things pumpkin come out! 

This is my favorite time of year.  And I started making pumpkin stuff and hiding it in my house over a month ago.  Hehehe, love love love it!  I made a couple of these stacking pumpkins.  One for outside and one for just inside my front door.  They were tedious because I was picky.  I got all 3 sizes of pumpkins from 3 different stores.  Then the pot came from yet another store.  But I had in my head what I wanted and wanted it just so.  The pot is from Garden Ridge.  The pumpkins are from Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Walmart.  I hot glued them all together and then wrapped a leaf garland around the base and hot glued a few leaves here and there.  I'm super excited about it because I can change out the decor for each season and just use the same pot.
 I love this project!  It's a bit of work, but oh so worth it.  I saw it on Pinterest from Infarrantly Creative.  She has great instructions on her blog of how to make this pallet art.  I think the only difference from mine and hers, is that she used silver paint and I used a linen color for the wording.  It's fairly inexpensive to make for how large it is too.  Also, an added bonus, I made 6 of them, and then had a bunch of left over wood around a foot each.  So, I made these below instead of just tossing the wood scraps in the garbage.  
I love how they turned out!  Not bad for a project made from things I was just going to toss out.  I nailed the wood together, and then lightly painted the 1x2 wood shims.  Then made a couple vinyl stencils, slapped on some paint, ripped the vinyl off, and they were totally done in like 30 minutes.  Start to finish.  And I love them. :)
